The Amen Break

I just found an incredible documentation about the “Amen Break” - a nearly 40 year old sample almost everybody knows and recognizes. For me as somebody who’s crazy about Drum’n’Bass it was most interesting to hear about the history of 6 seconds of music that changed today’s Pop music.

It’s not only about the sample, but also about intellectual property as it’s seen and legally enforced today without caring about stifling creativity and enrichment of culture.

Found here (via berlin Blogs).
